Dr Beatriz Jiménez, Ph.D.

NMR Manager
MRC-NIHR National Phenome Centre

A new course will be launched this year, an updated version of our very popular lecture based course "Metabolic Phenotyping in Disease Diagnosis and Personalised Health Care", which had the following course structure.

A lecture based course detailing an overview of metabolic phenotyping including the use of NMR spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry, with insights from the experts at Imperial College and collaborators from all over the world. Lectures will cover data acquisition and analysis with some advanced statistical workshops for more hands-on participation for attendees. There will also be examples of real life applications from the research at Imperial College and their collaborators.

Day 1 

Registration followed by session 1 which will cover an analytical technology (either NMR or MS) for metabolic profiling. A laboratory tour of the facilities will follow.

Day 2

Session 2 will cover the alternative analytical technique (NMR / MS) and will be followed by session 3 which will introduce the theory to statistical analysis.

Day 3

Session 4 covers the more advanced chemometrics, such as OPLS and O2PLS and includes hands-on workshops. Session 5 will introduce metabolite identification in both NMR and MS and also cover some tips and tricks to avoid common pitfalls.

Day 4

The final day will cover some of the real life applications of NMR and MS for metabolic phenotyping.

This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry. This event has been awarded 20 CPD credits by the Royal Society of Medicine in accordance with its current guidelines.
